Take in the view at Daikanbo, an observation area within the national park. The scenic spot, located on the top of a hill, offers views of five peaks of the mountain range, said to resemble a reclining Buddha. An onsite visitor center introduces the area, the significance of the view, and includes a restaurant serving light refreshments. To reach the observation platform, travel by car and use the onsite parking lot, or drop by as part of a longer walk through the national park.

大観峰の天気が一瞬にして霧で包まれ真っ白な世界に。この日は観光客を乗せた観光バスや自慢のバイクに乗ったライダーなど次々と大観峰駐車場へ来てました。天気が良ければ阿蘇山の全景を眺められる最高のロケーションなのですが山の天気は移り変わりが早いのてご注意下さい。 more »The weather of Daikan-mine is wrapped in fog in an instant and into a pure white world. On this day, we visited the Okanmine parking lot one after another, including tourist buses and riders on their proud bikes. If the weather is good, it is the best location where you can see the whole view of Mt. Aso, but please note that the weather of the mountain changes quickly.
5月下旬、土曜、快晴。美しすぎました。本当に気持ちの良い場所でした。 車も、バイクでツーリングしてる人たちもベストなドライブスポットですね。駐車場もいっぱいでした。 売店も満足ですし、ソフトクリームも美味しかったです。 大観峰の頂上までは結構な坂と長さですし、健脚でないとしんどいですね。 元気なうちにいくべきですね！ more »It was fine on Saturday, the end of May. It was too beautiful. It was a really pleasant place. It's the best driving spot for people touring by car or motorcycle. The parking lot was also full. The shop was very good, and the ice cream was delicious. It is a good slope and length to the top of The Large Peak, and it is hard if it is not a healthy leg. You should go while you are healthy!
We went there on a sunny winter day. Excellent walk and scenery.
